Thyroid is a gland which secrets hormones. Either increased or decreased levels are found in diseased condition. Generally fat fertile female of age forty are considered to be prone to this. Your headache may be due to acidity which is disturbing your abdomen. Regularize your diet, sleep and exercise avoid tension. Some simple antacids may help. Regards.

she has hypothyroidism a condition due to deficiency of thyroxine hormone, produced by thyroid gland. This leads to increase in tsh levels. To correct the condition treatment with thyroxine tablets has to be continued for life time. There is no cure. Ask her not to stop the treatment by listening to some body's advise.

That is basic defect in diabetes. Usually when we eat, immediately insulin is released called first phase release. In diabetes, this release in response to food is delayed, that causes rise in sugar. That is why medicene is given 1/2 hr before breakfast.

DIABETES - Dietary fiber could turn the tide

BHMS

DIABETES - Dietary fiber could turn the tide
Although Type-2 diabetes has a strong genetic component, diet and lifestyle significantly affect the likelihood that the disease will manifest and influence its course after diagnosis. The risk for type 2 and gestational diabetes can be decreased by avoiding overweight and by following specific dietary practices.

Populations that follow traditional diets low in animal fat and high in complex carbohydrates and who remain physically active have a far lower incidence of diabetes than those who follow a western diet and activity pattern. The incidence of diabetes has been found to be lower in vegetarians than non vegetarians.

A higher intake of dietary fiber, particularly in the form of fruits and vegetables, results in lower postprandial glucose. In addition, high-fiber diets often contain micronutrients important in glucose tolerance, including magnesium and Vitamin E.

Do thyroid can be cured  permanently?
Thyroid gland affects nearly every organ in the body. Many nutritional factors play a role in optimizing thyroid function. However, both nutrient deficiencies and excesses can trigger or exacerbate symptoms. Working in collaboration with a both a physician and a registered dietitian is essential to determine nutritional status for optimal thyroid health. Improper thyroid function causes undesired weight changes, significant cardiovascular risks, and symptoms such as fatigue, mood changes, and gastrointestinal upset, which can hinder the development of healthful behaviors. One should set realistic goals for healthy changes and regular exercise when counseling. There many potential nutrient deficiencies and interactions with medications and supplements. Hence diligent care is to be taken while designing a holistic treatment plan.

What diet should be eaten for sugar patients?
Diet for diabetes patient is no different than others, but certain precautions need to be taken like - avoid sweets, no direct sugar, avoid deep fried foods & fruits like mango, chikkoos & grapes. Always use whole grain flours (not maida). Total caloric intake has to be restricted based on the weight and level of exercise per day. In case of non vegetarians fish and chicken are good, red meat should be avoided. Tanduri items are good. Eggs without yolk should be taken.

Mr. lybrate-user, If you have joint pains or gouty arthritis, then you need to take drugs which help excretion of uric acid. Plus if there is acute painful arthritis then for some days (till attack subsides), may need NSAIDs. Plus you will have to avoid high purine containing foods like organ meat, mutton, certain sea foods like scallops, herring, haddock, sardines, salmon, mussels and mushrooms. Also avoid aerated drinks and alcohol. Thanks.

Ayurveda and Blood Sugar Imbalance

Ayurveda and Blood Sugar Imbalance

Ayurveda, the traditional way of healing is known to be a crucial and effectual therapy for a lot of ailments. Since the primitive ages, mankind has been approaching Ayurveda for remedial purposes and in most instances have reaped fruitful results. Ayurveda seeks to heal diseases using natural herbs that are said to resonate well with the four elemental constituents of beings, i.e air, water, earth and fire. Ayurveda uses myriad herbs and natural ingredients in a unique proportion to impart physical as well as spiritual wellness. One of the most common and yet fairly formidable disease plaguing modern lives is diabetes, induced by imbalance in the blood sugar levels in the human body. 

Ayurveda recommends the use of a few select herbs to control and alleviate the blood sugar imbalance.

  1. Gymnema Leaf: Indigenously called gurmar, Gymnema leaves regulate the insulin level in our body. It not only prevents absorption of sugar in the intestine, but also stimulates cell growth in the pancreas. As a consequence, the insulin levels in the body is maintained and the blood sugar problems get neutralized.
  2. Cinnamon: Cinnamon is replete with polyphenols that trigger off a healthy count of insulin secretion. Cinnamon has other beneficial properties as well. Whether consumed as tea or sprinkled on food as a flavor, Cinnamon can be instrumental in combatting blood sugar imbalance.
  3. Fenugreek seeds: A common find in most Indian kitchens, Fenugreek seeds are well known for their health advantages.  Its pungent sweet flavor adds to the taste of many dishes. But most importantly, fenugreek seeds extensively keep the blood sugar level in control. 
  4. Basil Leaf: Basil leaves are one of the most commonly used natural remedies for a wide range of diseases. The basil extracts are used in various food items and are extremely effective in curbing the excessive presence of blood sugar in the body. In general as well, basil leaves regulate the metabolism to a large extent.
  5. Coccinia Indica: This herb protects the vital organs from any damage caused due to diabetes. It stabilizes the breakdown of starch in the body.
  6. Azadirachta Indica: Common known as Neem, this herb is perhaps an indomitable medicine for increasing glucose tolerance. Neem is also used in allopathic medication on account of its various healing qualities.

Hi . Apart from all precautions you should also take care of your oral hygiene. Patients with diabetes are very much prone to periodontal problems. Make sure to brush twice daily and use mouthwash. And do visit dentist every 6 months for routine dental checkup.
